Last night on ‘The Bachelorette’ there was a showdown with Arie over a past relationship, but who dropped the ‘L’ bomb? But who went home? There were certainly a few ‘F’ bombs. If you missed last night’s explosive episode of ‘The Bachelorette’ read on to find out what happened and who will not now become Emily Maynard’s (next) fiancé.
The June 25 episode started with Chris Harrison addressing Arie’s past with Cassie, an ABC producer. Cassie had already spilled the beans to Emily but that made our Em’ furious as Arie had so far neglected to mention it.
“Like if he’s OK with hiding that he knows you, much as long dated you, what the f**k is he hiding?” Emily ranted to Cassie.
Boy did Arie get a grilling on his not so romantic date with Emily.
“Do you think you’re trustworthy,” Emily asked.
“Yes, I think I’m very trustworthy,” Arie responded.
“I like having no secrets,” Emily said.
“You have to be honest. You have to be almost too honest,” Arie said.
But he wasn’t. Even after breaking down and telling Emily he had something to confess, it was that he once had his ex-girlfriend’s name tattooed to his body.
Apparently that’s when Emily, Cassie and Arie got together off camera to talk and they worked things out.
So, we got to see Arie and Emily kissing and cuddling on a boat in Prague, and then came another shocking moment:
“I love you,” Arie told her. Wow!
Emily chose John for her next one-on-one date in Prague at the John Lennon Peace Wall, but it didn’t take Emily long to realize that there was some chemistry missing from their relationship. John admitted that he’s been really hurt in the past as his ex-girlfriend cheated on him one week after their one-year anniversary. That’s tough, John but you can’t keep dragging it into any new relationships!
Sean sort of flipped out when they arrived home, running around the streets calling Emily’s name. When he found her he kissed her passionately, telling her,
“Words can’t describe how good it feels to have Emily in my arms.”
The group date was a horse and carriage ride for Emily, Sean, Doug and Chris. They ended up at a 13th century castle. But there was no fairytale ending for Doug, one of my favorites of this season.
“I fought for you because I couldn’t say goodbye to you yet, but I don’t feel like you’re fighting for me,” Emily said, before sending him home because it wasn’t fair to keep him from his son any longer. Doug cried, I cried.
So I was ready for the one-on-one date with Jef. They went to a puppet store and Jef used to the puppets as a vehicle to share his feelings with Emily.
“This whole thing, I am one hundred one million percent in love with you and I can’t imagine what I’d do without you,” he told her.
So romantic, and even more so when the two put on a show about how they were first really nervous about each other and then went on to talk about marriage and kids. Yes the really did! Then they kissed and cuddled on the floor in a library. It was so cute until Jef worried about his messed up hair.
Then there was another shock: Emily said she already had made up her mind about who to send home and that they didn’t have to have a cocktail party.
Chris was sure he was for the chop because of how ungrateful he acted on the group date when he didn’t get a rose. Jef and Arie received the first two roses and just as Emily was about to hand out the last one, Chris interrupted. Really bad manners, Chris!
“I really believe in me and you and I’m not ready for this to end,” he said and Emily apparently agreed. She gave the rose to Chris, sending John home.
I can’t wait for the hometown dates next week when we see Emily visit Sean, Jef, Chris and Arie’s families! How about you? Were you shocked that Arie wasn’t sent home? Were you upset Doug was axed? Tell us what you think.
